Bruno Yakoski sits at the Paris caf he always visited with Daniela and orders a gin and tonic. Today he is alone. Daniela is dead. Memories merge in a kind of catharsis: his childhood in Mexico, the mystery that always cloaked Daniela, the gradual seduction that would end in ardent sexual encounters. Incapable of understanding her motives, Bruno explores the coincident circumstances of the trips she took to Spain, but his conclusions can only be based on suppositions put together through memories marred by an inexorable succession of gin and tonics.
